I /believe/ such mock conversions had been done, based on previous
threads here, tho NOT on the SCM-migration list, which would certainly
have the greater detail. AFAIK the previous sticking points were all
those still-open bugs, not the general conversion. But the bugs, other
than documentation, either seem mostly fixed or not so important, any
Of course, those previous trial runs are probably similarly dated, now,
so a new one's probably in order with the new perspective on those bug
priorities, etc, but at least getting the input of someone that was
involved with them should speed progress over some already covered
ground, in any case.
(I've considered following scmm myself, but there's apparently some sort
of issue between gmane, pan, and lists commonly crossposted between, that
has already killed project for me, header-fetch does nothing, and scmm
would almost certainly be similarly dead to me.)
